Les Mazures Terms and conditions

We invite you to take note of our terms and conditions, which you will be deemed to have accepted on payment of the deposit for a stay.

General provisions

These terms and conditions apply to contracts for the reservation of a "chambre d'hote" as defined by Art. D.324-13 of the French Code du Tourisme concluded with Mr Peter Clark, are inextricably linked to the reservation contract and are governed by the terms of the French Code Civil.

Length of stay and capacity

The customer, having signed a contract concluded for a fixed duration, may not under any circumstances invoke a right to remain in the premises.

The contract is for a specific number of people, including children whatever their ages. If the number of guests exceeds this number, the owner reserves the right to refuse the additional guests. This refusal cannot be construed as a modification or rupture of the contract. No reimbursement will be made in the event of the departure of the customer in these circumstances.

Confirmation of reservation

Stays are guaranteed only upon receipt of a deposit which will be deducted from the bill on arrival, and after our confirmation. Deposits must be paid at the latest within five days of the booking request. Deposits are cashed on reception and your booking considered firm after cashing. Payment of a deposit implies acceptance of these terms and conditions. The deposit required is

1. for a reservation more than 7 full days before the start of the stay, at least 50% of the total cost of the stay. A minimum deposit of 1 night per bedroom may apply.

2. for a reservation less than 7 full days before the start of stay, the total cost of the stay.

Payment of the deposit can be made by secure online payment or by bank transfer (client responsible for all fees, please check with your bank) for a payment more than 7 full days before the start of the stay. Payment less than 7 full days before the start of the stay may only be made by secure online payment.

Cancellation by customer

All cancellations must be notified by registered letter addressed to the owner. In case of cancellation, any deposit paid will be retained by the owner./p>

1. If cancellation occurs less than 72 hours before the start of the stay the deposit will be forfeit and the owner reserves the right to demand the balance of the price of the stay.

2. If the client does not arrive before 7pm on the scheduled date of the start of the stay, the contract becomes null and void and the owner may relet the guestrooms. The deposit will be forfeit and the owner reserves the right to demand the balance of the price of the stay.

3. In the case of a shortened stay, the customer will remain liable for all charges relating to the cost of accommodation for the full stay. Any additional services not consumed will be refunded.

Cancellation by owner

Where the owner cancels the stay before its start, he must inform the customer by registered letter. The client will be refunded immediately all sums already paid without prejudice to any recourse to damages possibly incurred. He will also receive compensation at least equal to the penalty he would have suffered if the cancellation was of his fault on that date.

Change of guestroom
